yotaYota is born in Stockholm, Sweden. Although her father was a performing singer and music had a great influence in her early life, she decided to go for arts school instead. As her first passion in life was art, running an art gallery with some friends along with studying arts was a natural choice for her. Later on by chance, her best friend connected her with a music producer, she then decided to give music and singing a try and started working with dancemusic in the late 90's for various electronic projects. Music took over more and more of her time. Later on she got in touch with Anders Mörén (Misty Music) and Håkan Lidbo (Container Publishing) around 2001. After a signed publishing deal with Misty Music and with the first track "Let me be" with Martin Venetjoki which was released on Mouthful Music ( a Chicago House music based recording label) things started rolling for real. Working with Zoo Brazil/Laid was her first strong release with a certain kind of high quality house music and she decided she would continue to focus on music in this genre. As a talented melody and lyrics writer she was asked to work for Universal and some other majors. Her latest releases have been on many respected labels (see. Discography). Yota already worked & collaborated with: Alan Braxe, John Acquavia, Lifelike, Zoo Brazil, Robert Görl, John Dahlbäck, Stonebridge, DJ DLG, Redroche, just to name a few of them.
